A Chicken Plague! My first experience with actually applying “hypnosis” (at least that’s what my next door neighbor, Gary Asay, and I called it) was on his dad’s chickens! By laying a chicken on its back and slowly waving a hand in front of its eyes for fifteen seconds it becomes paralyzed. Once it is “hypnotized”…Details
The Beginning of Hypnosis My interest in hypnosis all started as a young boy (maybe eight or nine) when I overheard a conversation in which a cousin was telling my relatives about a “stage-show hypnotist” that had come to his school and how the hypnotist made some of his classmates do strange and curious things.…Details
Hypnotherapy and NOW
Have you ever wondered how long NOW is? Well it is not very long; it is so short that this one is gone! But somehow you can’t get out of now. You cannot do anything in the past; you can’t do anything in the future; everything you have ever experienced has happened in this microsecond of now. You need to plan for the future so when that now gets here you are poised to take action. On the other hand all of your experiences of the past do not exist in this moment of now—they exist only in your mind. Worrying about things in the past doesn’t change them nor does worrying about things in the future change them in this microsecond of now. Once my hypnotherapy clients grasp the concept of living in the now (now I don’t smoke; in this now my actions are consistent with one who is fit and healthy; in this now, while flying, I am safe ….) maintaining the behavioral change for which they sought hypnotherapy to create becomes much easier and soon becomes a habit. By taking care of this moment of now everything falls into place—so have a wonderful NOW!

The messages your mind sends to your brain are…Details
The Mind Brain Connection I am convinced that your brain will automatically cause you to follow and carryout any instructions it receives from your mind. When I talk about your brain I mean the organ housed in your head that controls everything about your physical, mental and emotional being. When I talk about your mind…Details
Hypnosis Happens While in a Conscious State of Sleep I have been a hypnotist/hypnotherapist for over four decades and have worked with over 35,000 clients. The process that is called hypnosis is a process that is always going on in the human brain and can be intentionally used to change and alter behavior. Yes, hypnosis…Details
